of bipartisan consensus here at home. united states and russia accounts for the vast majority of the world's nuclear weapons with roughly 15,000 total warheads in the strategic-non- strategic basket. bilateral relations between the united states and russia are not what they have been in the most recent past. neither the united states nor russia faces issues were it requires them to be armed to the teeth were the effectiveness of each country's stock pile was proved to be prohibitively expensive. perhaps in past times, when the united states and russia targeted each other, the investment in maintaining the effectiveness of the stockpile was easily justified. discussion on the resize and content of the arsenal has been traditionally thought of in terms of threats, the size of the competing arsenal, geopolitical tensions, nato alliance security, etc. historically come a little consideration was given to funding the stockpile complex as there were general bipartisan and bicameral agreement in the intrinsic value of the nuclear arsenal strategically and as a deterrent. now, however, in the thir
nuclear weapons would signal reduced commitment to european security and embolden russia, who would seek to make use of that. if there were any such weakening of resolve, it would create instability, perhaps a crisis of confidence in europe, and potentially lead to more nuclear percolation. i outlined this in his first introductory. just to highlight whether this is true. there are questions in here. secondly, there is a question about whether deterrence are different in any way compare to those over here. and doesn't matter. there is also a question about what is driving this. are there increasing divisions between european and their attitudes towards russia? those are my questions. it is the american information security council, and we engage in discussions like this around nuclear disarmament and nonproliferation. but i'm going to introduce to you first dub brown, more formally lord browne, who is the secretary of defense around 2006 until 2009. he is also part of the european leadership network. we are talking about nuclear deterrence. i'm not. >> thank you very much. thank you for

, in talking about another country, russia. you know, russia desperately wants to reproduce itself to the rest of the world. and not in some of the main it has been. they get this opportunity with the g20 coming up in september. crystal ball, do you see anything from a coordination standpoint from the g20, and -- having out of this? this? and easy russia's image change? >> i think this is a big opportunity for the prime minister to show what could happen in russia. we will just have to see. because they're sitting on all these oil reserves. we know where the price of oil is. but there as you know there's a lot of problems. and so we have to see whether communist, russia can show that it's taking some of these reforms it needs to take. and we will see. and this is a perfect opportunity to do so. so far i think, as i said, the only g20 meeting that really did any thing positive was the one in london. and i give credit to gordon brown. that was his greatest moment i think at that particular time. do it. no, i mean come effect very organized meetings. i was in korea. there was no one who can organ
give the world some indication of how russia, china, the u.s., and essentially all major nations of the world to view the threat of a nuclear >> thank you, senator, for being here. and thank you for your military service. my single biggest concern about the nomination is the dramatic flip-flops between your past statements and record and what you are saying as a nominee. and they are about key, core issues. we have discussed some of those today. i want to focus on that, and i apologize if i go over some of the things that have come up before. i could not be here for most of the hearing. in 2006, when israel was responding to attacks by hezbollah from lebanon, you call that response, "a sickening slaughter." and you accuse israel of "the systematic destruction of an american friend, the people of and country of lebanon." what do you say about those statements?>> well, first, i said them. i have been asked about them. i have said that i regret saying that. it was within the larger context of a speech i made about what was going on, a thirtysomething days of war going on. i also inc
members that include the united states, china, it includes russia. russia is really neither an economic or military superpower except in regards to its nuclear arsenal. and then we have friends and britain and here we have two very much medium powers that are not economic heavyweights, you still exert a great deal of forward and influence in world affairs. a large part of that as leverage they security council itself. we have no india, no brazil, no party from outside this kind of frozen group. and this is, i think, an enormous problem for the security council and one that there's probably no structural way to overcome. the reason why is pretty simple. if you say to any of the current members, why did she set on down, france and britain come you guys had to combine in a single european union fee. and then there's a lot of hemming and hauling it in the meantime, germany pops up and says pet, we are actually one of the world's great economic superpowers. we have no military to speak of and we cannot do anything, but we pay for everything, so we actually deserve a seat. she say we know how
in those components on that part. you know, just as an aside, in talking about another country, russia, you know, russia desperately wants to reintroduce its self to the rest of the world. and not in some of the way that it has been. they have this opportunity with a g20 coming of in september. crystal ball. do you see anything from a coordinations standpoint from veggie 20 coming out of this? you see russia's image changing? >> well, i think this is a bigger opportunity for the prime minister to show what could happen. we will just have to see. they're sitting and these are reserves. we know where the price of oil is, but there are a lot of problems. and so we have tessie weather, you know, russia can show that it is taking some of these reforms it needs to take. we will see, and this is a perfect opporunity to do so. so far, i think, as i said, the only g20 meeting that really did anything positive was the one in london, and i give credit to gordon brown, that was his greatest moment, i think, at that particular time. the i mean, you have had very well organized meetings. i was in korea.
russia, a permanent member of the u.n. security council, to put pressure on their ally, syria. they say they welcome any attempts from any side to end the conflict and end the violence happening. they have always said that they were concerned about crimes committed against humanity and they have always stressed that they will do everything that they can to support moves to end the conflict in syria. >> we will have more in a moment, but staying in brussels , they have agreed to renew an arms embargo against syria. britain wanted to allow the nation's two armed forces, but many say neither side should be armed with weapons from europe. sanctions are also amended to provide greater humanitarian and technical assistance and protection of civilians. let us turn now to nina to ask for more about the foreign minister's reasoning for renewing the arms embargo on syria. >> most eu countries are worried about the further militarization of the conflict. they say against the background reports coming in that anti- government forces have also committed war crimes but they are reluctant to send more
: with russia, putin came kgb and is going back to his bad old ways. there was hope for democracy in russia. putin has consolidated power and the difficult for democrats in russia to be able to have democratic government. that is the big worry. look at what russia and china have done in the united nations. they have made it difficult to slap sanctions on iran and to prevent iran from having a nuclear weapon. i have seen russian democracy slide backwards as long as putin in there. i think the russian people want democracy. putin is trying to be like the old russian leaders and trying to rule with an iron fist. i think it strangles russian democracy. we see less and less freedoms for the people. they are an important country. host: we have another tweet. host: you have nothing to do with this nomination. what a year thoughts about senator hagel? guest: if you start a precedent that you need 60 votes, i think that is a bad precedent. i've had some questions about senator hagel. majority should prevail. host: how would you vote? guest: i don't like hypothetical. once you start with this nominat
and we went on a trip with the first lady, and a small group of journalists out to russia, and got a chance to see interesting sites, and a close-up look at hillary clinton, and one of the things that stood out in my mind, not the temples and all of that, but this moment in kazakhstan, and she was presented with a whip, and normally it's just the men that carries the whips with them, and she was considered so powerful as a first lady and she was presented with one of them, and she got a kick out of that, and there were a lot of jokes that followed that. >> right. we used to call them remember the hillary clinton trips. and they were under the radar, and there was some coverage but not as much, so you could really get to know her. it was a small group. and there was very interesting times. of course i have been following her for the past four years at the state department. >> jill, you actually said something that was pretty interesting earlier today and you wrote a whole article about it, and nobody saw her sleep. you never knew if you saw her get sleep during those trips, and she
of the worst, germany, russia and poland, the chance of war or violent deaths are several times slower than most traditional societies that it's not that they're more vicious. it's more intermittent affair because the government declares war and the saudi government declares peace, hotheaded young men who want to start a war or restrained from starting, whereas traditional societies is a government that restrains potheads from going back to work. traditional societies are costly and the numbers show chances of dying a violent death in traditional societies that contains the chance is to mobile society. >> jemma mintier right there. >> we just see in our own country in recent months just to much pure evil if you will. could you imagine any traditional society en masse killing of children? the virtues of the traditional society prevent that. >> not only can i imagine that, sadly it's common. sadly it is common to killings of children and friends of mine said of course we will kill the women and of course will kill the children because they would give birth to worsen the children will grow up
. if you want to compare the worst of the worst, germany, russia and poland during during the 20th century, the chance of the dawning of lord or violent deaths in any of those countries during the 20th century are several times slower than the chance of dying a violent deaths in most traditional society. it's not that people in traditional societies are more vicious. it is were is instrumented in modern societies because the government declares war and peace in the government declares peace, hotheaded young men who want to start a war are restrained from starting the war was in traditional society, there isn't a government are restrained sarcasm going back to work in. traditional societies are most cosmically. modern societies intermittently in the number shows the chance of dying a violent death in traditional societies have been the 10 times the chance. that's been a big surprise. >> another question. yes, gentleman to your right they are. >> with attention for more, we see in our own country in recent months just to much pure evil if you will. could you imagine in a traditional society
we have information. if you want to compare the worst of the worst, germany, russia, and poland during 20th century. the chances of dying of war or violent death in any of those countries during the 20th century are several times lower than the chances of dying of violent death in most traditional societies, and the reason is that the people in traditional societies are more vicious but that war is an intimate affair in modern societies with governments because the governments declare war and eventually declares peace. when the government declares peace hot headed young men who want to start a war again are restrained from starting a war, whereas in traditional societies without a centralized government there is of a government that restrains the hot heads from going back to work. so the reality is the traditional societies among war almost constantly. modern societies only intermittently, and the numbers show that the chances of dying of violent death and traditional society is something like ten times the chance to attend best deterrent the chance. that has been a big surprise

over a long period of time and hope whoever is responsible will be punished severely. in russia's parliament, there was a moment for this young boy follow bid a series of passionate speeches by politicians claiming his death proves they were absolutely justified in passing legislation banning u.s. nationals from adopting any more russian children. they did that at the end of last year. partly in response to u.s. legislation, targeting russian human rights abusers. but also because of concerns held for a long time here by russian officials who say they are worried about the way russian orphans are treated in the united states. supporters of the adoption ban claim since the 1990s 19 other russian children have died after being adopted by americans. the russian government says it is very concerned about the welfare of russian orphans and says 60,000 have are been adopted over the last 20 years. the adoption ban is one of the key reasons why relations between the united states and russia are the worst that they have been in a long time. a line of politicians here and officials have
. it was a lost opportunity of strengthening he could have done in the region. for china, iran, and russia and pakistan, we need more allies in that region and not to isolate ourselves. to leave afghanistan too quickly will put them in the arms of other countries. we would miss an opportunity to grow a real partnership over there. i definitely think maybe that's not military, maybe state department stuff instead. [indiscernible] i feel like cutting banks' stock will limit our ability to have that impact. when we talk about the american economy and american workers and values, it's good for us to be good to other places and that helps us here at home too.

indeed. ashley: we have the g20 getting together in russia this week. it seems the hot topic is the currency wars and i'm sure a lot of attention will be put on japan but they're not going to shed any tears, are they? they're quite happy to devalue the yen because they need their exports to get a boost. is there anything the g20 can do on that issue? >> well, as you've seen through the verbage in the press, the statement by the g7, subsequent clarifying statements and leaking of a potential draft statement by the g20 there is concern less that someone important, perhaps, japan, begins actually intervening in currency markets. that would be crossing a red line and could cause some real problems that could generate market volatility, could be damaging. so i suspect there's a bit of conflating in the public discussion what's going on. it is one thing to want your currency to be a bit lower. it is another thing to actively intervene. that would be unacceptable to everyone's partners. ashley: we'll be following the g20 carefully. thank you so much. john lipsky, with johns hopkins
and weaker ones. for the last few years the greeks have been overhyped, india, russia and china all of them moving towards state capitalism and actually going to slow potential growth. i think some of the success stories in latin america is not brazil but chile or colombia. or if you're looking in asia, comparing to chile, china and india, philippines look like better story. not lump together all emerging markets and look at actually some of those not on the radar screens today. >> i certainly wouldn't advocate an index fund in emerging markets. you have to be selective. i prefer china, brazil and colombia to russia or argentina. but, hey, you know, the global emerging is still an interesting area. sorry, steve. >> jim, how critical is the fed being wide up to europe investment outlook and what's the chance that you think they end this year? >> i think the fed is, you know, pretty important in the sense that it's following the global orthodoxy of central bank policy which is very easy liquidity in the banking system. and of course, as you know, steve that isn't leading at the moment to any

and what we did to russia. guest: i think there's a lot of focus on the role that china should play in this. if the caller said china is the only country providing goods to north korea these days and there for the north koreans are very dependent on them. china has also invested in a lot of industries in north korea moving out a lot of the minerals. the northern part of north korea is very mineral-rich. they have been moving copper, nickel, iron ore, coal, and to the two inland provinces adjacent to the peninsula to help their own economy in china. they have really been working toward its own benefits on the peninsula in terms of supporting north korea. where there is a lot of effort these days behind the scenes is getting china to contribute to this issue in a way to broaden the security interests of the region which is to do more in terms of persuading north koreans to engage in more responsible behavior. sometimes there requires punishing them. there's more and more pressure on china to do that sort of activity, but thus far it's difficult to say whether that has been successful. host: a
